Process Focused Therapy

PLEASE NOTE: This is a 2-day training.

Conducting couples therapy is much more than learning a model and facilitating interventions. The skilled couple’s therapist must understand the process of couples therapy – how and when to move in to shape conversations and then move out again; how to develop a strategy to help couples reach their own ‘Aha’ moments with skill and empathy.

This workshop uses an integrated approach in drawing on evidenced-based strategies taken from various models including Gottman Method Couples Therapy (GMCT), Emotion Focussed therapy for couples (EFT-C), the Psychobiological Approach to Couple Therapy (PACT), Schema Therapy for Couples (ST-C), and Attachment theory.

The workshop offers a very practical, hands-on training that leads participants from the first consultation with the couple, through the assessment process, the therapeutic phase, the relapse prevention phase, and the termination of therapy.
